To say:
	Follow instructions,
	otherwise go and ask someone for explanation 
is a bit unfriendly and not helping the interested
systemadministrator to decide what to do and where to go if he 
does not understand it.

What about:
	Regular Debian kernels switched to using initrd for 2.6.x
	kernels, because it has several advantages. 
And then
	Ask on debian-xxx@xxx or look at www.debian.org/initrd
	if you want the details.
